Hi! Here are some samples of bronze clay. I found it difficult to work with - the texture was like grainy stoneware and it dried fast! This small yield took about 3 hours to make - a long time, considering how long it would usually take in silver pmc. I still have to fire them, so I will make more pieces to make it worth the effort. I'm disappointed with it. I was hoping the clay would have a different texture, it is very difficult to keep the clay moist, as it dries almost instantly. It is possible I got a dry or defective pouch. I opened the pouch and it was already almost leatherhard - to begin I had to soften it up with water (which made a muddy mess). I'm not giving up yet, as you can see, I got it to work. It was just very frustrating, as I was expecting it to be more like pmc, something I use all the time. I'm determined to master this challenging product!
To cheer myself up from my puny yield, I bought two new books 'Alabama Stitch Book' and 'Martha Stewerts Cookies'. I love that sewing book so much! I'm dying to make the reverse aplique corset! The projects feature hand sewing and beading, using recycled t -shirts, so the look is modern, yet classic. The cookie book is so good. I made the Pistachio Chocolate Biscotti and was surprised how easy it was to make and how delicious the results. Well, I'm off to mess with that clay, maybe I'll have better luck after my chocolate fix.
